As the facts about Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election become more and more evident, I have been impressed with Sen. Angus King’s thoughtful and even-handed pursuit of the truth. Maine people need representatives who will carefully examine evidence and draw conclusions based on facts, and not partisan politics.
As a member of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Sen. King has closely followed investigations into Russian interference in a patient and deliberate manner. When he came to the conclusion that Russian interference occurred, he addressed it directly, and as a national security violation of the utmost importance. His instinctive placement of the American people, and of our democracy, before partisan fighting has been a trademark of his first term in the Senate, and it is the reason I will be casting my vote for Sen. King on Nov. 6.
